Yes, it will reset everything though, you will need to set it up again if you have any non standard settings.
Use a pen tip and hold the little reset button in till it starts blinking. (7 or so seconds)
Then you may need to enter http://192.168.1.1 into your web browser and reenter your ISP username and password.
Sometimes, if it is set in your modem, it will just work.

What is my router username amd password?


Unless the password has been changed from its default settings it is:
username: admin
password: password

If that doesn't work you will have to reset the router back to defaults. Instructions on that can be located here:

How do I change the password on the Actiontec wireless router? (Not the WPA key, but the web interface password. I just want to change it from the default "password1")


  1. Open a Web browser. In the “Address” text box, type http://192.168.0., then press Enter on the keyboard.
  2. The Web Configurator’s “Main Menu” screen appears. Select Setup/Configuration.
  3. From the Setup/Configuration screen, select Admin Username/Password from the menu on the left side.
  4. The “Change Admin Username/Password” screen appears. Enter a new user name (optional) in the “New Username” text box, then a password in the “New Password” text box. Re-enter the password in the “Re-enter New Password” text box. Make sure to write the user name and password down and keep them in a secure location.
  5. Click Save and Restart at the bottom of the screen.
  6. The “Save and Restart” page appears. Click the Save and Restart button to save the settings changed in the Change Admin Username/Password screen.
  7. Once the Gateway has rebooted, the password is active.

Cannot find WEP key on my actiontec modem


You can get it by opening the router's setup page through IE and type http://192.168.0.1 and it will prompt you for username and password. Username is admin and password is password. You can see your WEP key under Wireless tab, then Wireless Security

Need to find existing WEP ID, do not want to reset my WEP ID


Flip over your ACTIONTEC and you would see there the default wep key. If you've had it personalized before, you have to open the configuration page of your modem and check for the wep key.

To go to the configuration page, open your internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. that is the default address for your actiontec. type in your username and password when prompted. the usual default it ADMIN for username and PASSWORD (lowercase) for password. or you could also try ADMIN (uname)-ADMIN(pword).

click on the wireless settings icon and then click on basic security settings. scroll down on the middle of the page and you will see there your wep key.

if you are unable to open the configuration page because you forgot your username and password, you can reset your modem so that it the uname and password will go back to its factory default settings (admin/password). However, if you are using pppoe connection (authentication using username and password to connect to network) you can lose your connection and you would have to configure your router. so be careful not to press the reset button at the back.

Username and password


if this is fresh from the box, the factory default will be (username - admin) and the (password - admin). but if this already configured by the user before, all you have to do is restart it so that it will back into factory default.

simply press the "reset button" for 10 sec...
then try to login as a factory default then configure it again

From a wired or wirelessly connected device do the following:-
1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the Default Gateway value is the IP Address of your modem/router
usually 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.254
6. Note this value down
7. Click OK
8. Click OK or Close
9. Now open Internet Explorer
10. Enter http:// followed by your gateway address noted in 6. above
e.g. http://192.168.0.1
11. You will now have to enter a username and password
If the box has the username and password completed, then click OK
If there is no value for username try "admin" and for the password try one of the following "password", "admin",
Also try nothing for the username and "admin" for the password
Sometimes the value for these are written on the underneath of the router
On the left look for the WAN or WAN Setup in there should be a vlaue for the MTU
overtype in your new value and click "Save" or "Apply"

WEP key recovery


Connect a computer to the router via Ethernet cable, then you should be able to log into the router to set it up by opening a web browser and putting "http://192.168.1.1/" or "http://192.168.0.1/" (without the quotes) into the address line. The default username and password is usually "admin" and "admin" or username "admin" with no password. From there you should be able to configure the router and retrieve or change the WEP key.

Let us know how you make out.
